Five Finger Death Punch Postpone Paris Show
Five Finger Death Punch are bowing out of another show for the time being. The band has announced that they will postpone their show at the Olympia in Paris, France that was scheduled to take place Tuesday to a later time. The news comes on the heels of a postponement of a show in Milan, Italy after it was rumored that the performance was a potential target for a terrorist threat.
The band issued a statement on the matter, revealing that they still are on tour in Europe and planning to play more dates. However, they are analyzing each date as they continue. Check out their post on the matter below:
It is with deep regret that we will postpone our show at the Olympia in Paris tomorrow November 24th. We are still on tour in Europe, and we are evaluating each show day by day. A lot of work and analysis goes into each decision. Since the events in Paris last week, the situation is still very chaotic - a lot of misinformation - and a lot uncertainty in some places. But the most important factor is the safety of the fans which we are not willing to compromise. As a result, for now we will have to postpone the Paris show. Please stay tuned for more info.
Five Finger Death Punch are among many rock bands attempting to navigate their way through the current climate in Europe after the recent terrorist attack in Paris. On Nov. 13, 89 people lost their lives at Le Bataclan when terrorists invaded an Eagles of Death Metal show and opened fire on the crowd.
